The 10th anniversary of the liberation of Kuwait offers a time for reflection upon the reconstruction of a nation, not just physical reconstruction, but psychological reconstruction, as well. This paper briefly describes the efforts of the Social Development Office, Amiri Diwan, as an essential element in the preservation and reconstruction of the national identity of Kuwait in the wake of the Iraqi invasion and occupation. SDO may serve as a useful model for other war-torn countries on how to rehabilitate a national identity in the wake of a national disaster.
